Appearances[edit | edit source]
Delta Attack is an enemy ability used by the Magus Sisters. When used, Sandy casts Reflect on Cindy who attacks a target, and Mindy then casts an offensive spell on Cindy, which bounces off and hits the player party. The sisters' version of the Delta Attack is not really a programmed attack skill, but rather a strategy. It can be avoided by silencing Sandy.
Delta Attack is an enemy ability used by Phobos, Nereid, and Triton, three of Exdeath's lackeys, when one of them is defeated and revived before the player has a chance of killing one of the others. It inflicts low to mediocre non-elemental damage to one character with a chance of inflicting Petrify. Omega also uses Delta Attack, which does more damage, but can be reflected. The Mover enemy located in the final dungeon can also use Delta Attack. If the player catches it, Delta Attack will be used upon the enemy's release.
Neo Exdeath uses Delta Attack during the final battle, and reflecting it will instantly destroy one of Neo Exdeath's four sections, regardless of where it hits; this can be done once per battle. Enuo, Omega Mk.II, and Neo Shinryu all can use this attack in the Advance and later remakes.
Delta Attack (also called Delta Hit) is an enemy ability used by the Dream Stooges Laragorn, Curlax, and Moebius. It has a possibility of petrifying the character it hits, and it cost 20 MP for the enemy to use. Omega Weapon and Inferno can also use the attack.
Triangle Attack is an enemy ability used by the Movers, it deals moderate non-elemental damage to one party member.
Movers in Terra will cast Delta Attack when three are alive at the same time. It only uses Delta Attack as a counterattack when all three Movers are hovering and inflicts Instant Death to the character that attacked them.
Delta Attack is the Magus Sisters' Overdrive and the strongest aeon Overdrive, and has the longest animation sequence. It is a non-elemental attack, which breaks the damage limit by default; however, the attack is hindered by the enemy's defense, so inflicting Armor Break beforehand is useful. In the International and HD Remaster versions, it deals 6 attacks rather than just 1.
When the Magus Sisters and the Dark Magus Sisters are fought, they can use their Delta Attack Overdrive on the player. When used by the Dark Magus Sisters every hit deals 99,999 damage and it nulls Auto-Life.
Delta Attack is used by the moogles in the trial "Thornmarch (Extreme)" on command of Good King Mogglemog XII. Three of the moogles will move into position to release a triangular attack in the center of battle arena that inflicts heavy damage to anyone inside. Players should avoid the center to keep from getting caught in the attack.
In the Savage difficulty version of Deltascape V4.0, Neo Exdeath will unleash Delta Attack upon the party; forcing the party to dodge Blizzard III attacks and spread to avoid overlapping Fire III attacks all while the tanks are enduring powerful Thunder III tank busters.
In the Savage version of Sigmascape V4.0, Kefka unleashes a variation of Delta Attack named Celestriad, which casts Blizzard III, Thunder III, and Fire III on the party.
In Alphascape V3.0, Omega unleashes Delta Attack upon the party as its ultimate attack, dealing colossal damage requiring heavy mitigation. In the Savage difficulty version the party must use a tank's Limit Break 3 to survive. The healers must restore the party to full health, as Delta Attack will petrify any players not fully healed.
In Eden's Gate: Resurrection, Eden Prime uses a different Delta Attack which casts Eden's Blizzard III, Eden's Thunder III, and Eden's Fire III at once. Eden's Blizzard III targets the center circle around it, Eden's Thunder III targets the center row and center column, and Eden's Fire III targets everyone for splash damage, requiring players to spread out to avoid them. In Savage mode, while Eden Prime buffs itself with Paradise Regained, Regained Blizzard III requires all players to stay in its hitbox, Regained Thunder III requires the tanks to spread away from the other seven players, while Regained Fire III requires the DPS and healers to stack.
While enemy abilities are not explicitly named, necromancers and psychomancers use an ability similar to Delta Attack, with the three flames floating around them forming a triangle and firing a beam at the party that deals heavy damage and inflicts petrification. The attack can be avoided by staying close to the enemy and on the ground, as the beam originates above them and will pass over the player's head from this position, though this can leave the player vulnerable to their instant death attacks instead.
Delta Attack is the Magus Sisters' special attack when summoned. It inflicts non-elemental damage to all enemies and recovers the HP and reduces the damage taken for two turns to all party members. Using Delta Attack costs 2 points from the Consumption Gauge.

Delta Attack is one of Exdeath's HP attacks, which allows him to unleash a wave of arcane energy at midrange. It is unlocked by default at level 1. It doesn't have any defensive properties. It is, however, one of the faster HP attacks and it can be charged to increase its range or to punish dodging attempts.
Delta Attack is usable by one of Moebius's cards while Laragorn and Curlax are also in play. For the discard of another Moebius card, Delta Attack allows the player to select one of the opponent's Forwards. As long as a card with the job "Three Dream Stooges" remains in play, that Forward cannot attack, Block, or use its abilities.
